SAN LEON, Texas – Two houses caught fire in San Leon on Wednesday.

The fires were reported at neighboring houses in the 1600 block of Dick Bay.

Video from Sky 2 showed one of the homes had burned to the ground, while firefighters battled flames shooting from the roof of the second house.

Six people were able to get out okay and family members were able to be reunited with their two dogs who had been missing for several hours.

“How do you feel that they are out and safe?”

“Very happy,” responded a family member who did not want to be identified.

It was the ending the family had been hoping for. Their two dogs, Rowdy and Bear, were back in their arms after a massive early morning fire scared them off.

“About 5 a.m. I saw the glow out my front door window. I was sure I was gonna see an ambulance. When I poked my head up to the window and saw the fire, I screamed, “Honey!” as loud as a I could to wake my wife and she went nuts,” said neighbor Perry Lazer.
